darkness

Sleep

I like the day when people are awake and the world is bright and warm and busy
I like the night when people are asleep and the world is cool and calm and quiet
I like the sunrises and the sunsets and the sun high above at noon
I like the stars scattered all across the sky and all the phases of the moon

I like every moment of every day and every moment of night
But the little death declares that i must rest and cannot have them all
